This is an extremely Limited Edition button brooch (I am only ever making 15 of these) which I have produced especially for Valentine's Day 2012, reflecting the Love is Awesome ethos.

Love is Awesome was a group exhibition held in Reading in 2009 which explored the theme of love in a complex and multidimensional way, acknowledging that love isn't always easy, and exploring the idea that 'awesome' can mean 'terrifying' as well as 'wonderful'.

The show - Love is Awesome - celebrated the broken heart as well as the happy heart, and recognised that love is a force which can tear you up as easily as it can make your spirit soar.

This brooch reflects those messy contradictions, being presented on a brown card tag which shows a pretty picture of roses on one side, and a chainsaw on the other. Both images are hand-stamped in water-resistant "Blazing Red" ink, and the covering on the brooch is a deep red, heathery, vintage, pure wool Tweed, containing flecks of other colours.
